An Unappreciated, Unsung Spice
Ode to Vanilla
One Word Only contest entry
Vanilla is one of the most expensive spices, (next to Saffron). It is used in so many dishes, and harvesting it is fairly easy if you can get your hands on the beans. When you buy it, there's many different strengths and processes to get it into a bottle. Yet cooks use it just willy-nilly in the kitchen, as if it were a staple, not a luxury. The vanilla fragrance is often used to freshen up a room. But to call a life or a look Vanilla, well, we don't want that, do we? Enjoy your pudding, cake, icing, cookie, whatever treat you use it in, a little more for having taken a moment, and given an ode to vanilla.Pays one point and 2 member cents.
